im more referring to the materials and construction than the tech. there aren't many *cast* aluminum parts on a good MTB, if any. get back to me when motocross bikes are using EPS or RTM carbon for the mainframes.

wasn't referring to intense specifically. i own one. intense was failing for many reasons. there's a good podcast with steber over at vitalmtb. marketing and customer loyalty is EVERYTHING in the MTB world. see: Yeti.

a motocross bike built to the same level with similar materials would be $35K. stock motocross bikes are built pretty cheaply in reality. honestly the aluminum frames on the japanese stuff wouldn't cut it on a walmart mountainbike.

im not throwing shade, but it's interesting to track the consistency of various riders' characteristics over the years. e.g. josh grant broke his femur again, Marvin came in 3rd (or 2nd), tomac's gonna tomac, etc etc tigers don't seem to change their ... more »
